Well I think you are talking about AM2 vs 939. Those are just different socket types for the processors. The only real difference is that AM2 can use DDR2 memory while socket 939 uses DDR1 memory.

Here are some AM2 motherboards

Uh, AM2 is a new socket for processors designed by AMD. The two major chip makers are Intel and AMD. Just search on newegg.com, and you should get some hits.

IBM I believe does its own line, but they aren't worth mentioning, most of us won't have an IBM cpu they are mainly for the server industry.

Motorolla is pretty big. Until MAC went to Intel processors, they used Motorolla processors. Also, VIA is another manufacturer and is known for their ability to run without a heatsink... Lhuser!

Just a new socket and the jump to DD2 for AMD i think AM2 will be the step towards AMD's next gen processors
